Spybaiting | Technique of Silent Capture


Realis Spinbait 80

The original vehicle for Japanese deadly finesse technique of silent capture.

The compact, aerodynamic and hydrodynamic body of the Spinbait 80 produces significant parabolic momentum when cast; activates, multi-directional actions and vibrational wave lengths when retrieved. In a single cast, these built-in attributes allow Spinbait 80 to trace deeper zones longer.

Paired propellers rotate against disks causing a distinct audible pitch and a compressed vibration called “micro-pulsing”.

The cupped propeller configuration displaces soft but turbid water along the lure’s body-line releasing what is called “plum-effect”. “Plum-effect” is actually detected by the bass frontal nerve network is situated through the fore-region of the bass helping the bass feel pressure and vibration. This sensory matrix integrates with the bass instinctive predatory and territory responses.

Uniquely shaped body halves and angled ballast induce a shimmer motion and subtle body rotation called “passive minnow vibration”. This occurs when the lure is paused or allowed to free-fall to another depth.

The tracking of the lure is significantly straight and purposeful. However, slow motion video also shows the lure exhibiting a “listing action” which is called “body-flash”. This flashing or reflecting during the retrieve has the tempo of a casual unassuming feeding minnow. The objective is to display a non-stressed, highly regulated minnow, the precursor to neutral mode activity.
